Proposed FY 2018 Transportation Improvement Program

The public comment period has been extended through September 12, 2017 to allow comments to be made on the addition of new project 45th East – Willow Creek Bridge to the local bridge program as well as other minor modifications.

The Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO) is an agency designated by the Governor of Idaho to conduct a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative transportation planning process in the urbanized area under the direction of elected officials from the Cities of Ammon, Idaho Falls, Iona, Ucon, and the urbanized portions of Bonneville County, and Targhee Regional Public Transportation Authority (TRPTA), in conjunction with the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD). Under the requirements of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA), BMPO has the responsibility to develop an annual Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the urbanized area.

The BMPO’s TIP is a short range five-year program of highway and transit projects for the Bonneville Metropolitan Area. It is a compilation of projects from various Federal, State and local funding programs. The TIP is fiscally constrained which means the funding source for a project must be identified and anticipated to be available for completion of the project.

The proposed FY 2018 TIP will be available to the public for review during normal business hours (M-F, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) at the BMPO office located at 1810 W. Broadway, Suite 15 in Idaho Falls. The document can also be viewed on the BMPO website:  Comments will be taken from July 3, 2017 through September 12, 2017.  Comments can be made via phone at (208) 612-8530 or email at If requested, a public hearing will be held.

This publication specifically satisfies the Federal Transit Administration’s Program of Projects requirements.

The proposed FY 2018 TIP will be the final program unless amended.
